The Japanese House is back with a brand new track, 'Something Has To Change'

If we were doing a ranking of the best pop stars, there's one name we'd put at the top of all others. It's nothing against the rest of 'em - Billie, you're great; Charli, we love you; Carly, utter ledge - but the greatest of them all? Calvin, obviously.

No, not that one. The other one.

Yep, The Japanese House is back with a brand new track. Titled 'Something Has To Change' it's the first taster of a fresh EP set to follow this November, and showcases Amber Bain as one of the sharpest talents 'about'. But also, it has a video too - and that video includes an appearance by Amber's dog Calvin.

Laying it on a bit thick for the doggie, Dork? Yeah, well, if you read our interview with Amber from this year's Reading festival, you'll know why. Calvin, we're sorry.

Reparations aside - the clip is directed by photographer and director Nadira Amrani, who has worked with 'the likes of' Flohio and Sawayama, and is styled by Patricia Villirillo. It's also the first appearance of the full The Japanese House ensemble in a video. We're counting our Calv in that.

That EP - produced by Amber and BJ Burton, who also worked on the brilliant debut album 'Good At Falling' - will also go under the name 'Something Has To Change', and arrives before a short run of live dates this November. Tickets will be available on presale on Wednesday 2nd October, and will be on general sale on Friday 4th October at 9am

You can check out those dates, and the video for 'Something Has To Change', below.
